“Delicious Portuguese food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

My colleagues and I wanted to try local portuguese food and local colleagues recommended the Vela Latina restaurant.

The restuarant is conveniently located right across the road from Senado square, so it is easy to find.

We went on a weekday evening, so while they were busy, there was still tables upstairs and we did not have to wait.

We ordered 3 dishes - veal (delicious and generous portions - best of the lot), cod (still tasty but portion is small and so is quite pricey), curry chicken (i thought this was ok only).

Price is moderate - we spent about USD 25 per person for main course only.

“Pricey - Food's Pretty Good - Good Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

We wanted to try some Macau-Portuguese and came up with this recommendation from another website. The location was very good - kiddy corner to the Leal Senado Square. The food was pretty good, but was a bit pricey for what it was. Average price was about US$25-$30 per person for lunch. Because of its location, it was definitely touristy.
